Common Ice Maker Problems
There are a variety of reasons why your ice maker may not function correctly, listed below are the most common problems:
- The Ice Maker isn’t Producing Cubes
An ice maker that isn’t producing ice cubes is often caused by problems with the water supply. Signs and symptoms of this include smaller ice cubes or no ice cubes at all. Check that the ice maker supply lines are connected correctly and free from damage or clogs.Filters in your ice maker should be changed every six months. Our dedicated team of technicians can advise you on this.
- A Freezing Ice Maker
If water freezes in the system before reaching the mold, then no cubes will form. This is often caused by damage to the thermostat. This can also be caused by user error when the freezer temperature is set too low.You should check the temperature settings and consult your owners manual to check temperatures are set correctly.
- Ice Cubes get Stuck in the Machine
This common issue can be frustrating and often occurs when your ice maker is in the wrong mode. Therefore check your owners manual to rule out user error. Try raising and lowering the dispenser arm to check it isn’t jammed. If you’ve ruled these factors out, then give us a call for help you can trust.
